Nvidia have a whole bunch of new graphics cards options for PC gamers in NZ and they’re calling them SUPER!
UPDATE: Nvidia have a new 2x Game BONUS up for grabs too! Check out the SUPERFAST SUPERNATURAL Promotion for more information.
Much like the existing Ti identifier, these new ‘S’ models (EG: ROG-STRIX-RTX2060S-O8G-GAMING) indicate the increased performance of the much loved RTX 2060, RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 options – with the new models named RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2080 SUPER. Right now, Nvidia is busy showing off the founders’ edition cards but there are some wonderful new aftermarket versions for these ones too!
Kicking off with the RTX 2060 SUPER models we get a 2GB memory upgrade bringing the total to 8GB onboard. This is nice for those playing games such as Apex Legends, which displays a memory warning when running the game on max settings with the 6GB card.
Looking at the first releases, we have some excellent new RTX 2060 Super Graphics Card models!
The new RTX 2070S is running 8GB VRAM also, but the GPU architecture this time is taken from the RTX 2080 (Turing 104, classic RTX 2070 is using Turing 106) so it’s looking a lot like a cut-down RTX 2080 🙂 This, of course, makes the RTX 2070 Super Graphics Card power requirements change heavier due that increased performance, with the RTX 2070S now using the 8pin + 6pin power connection rather than a single 8-pin seen on the classic RTX 2070.
New models for RTX 2070 Super as below!
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Gaming OC
Asus GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Dual EVO
Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER
Aorus GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER
EVGA GeForce RTX 2070S SUPER Black
EVGA GeForce RTS 2070S SUPER XC
And that brings us to the new RTX 2080 Super, which is also running with 8GB VRAM and Turing 104 architecture just like the standard version, but with a few additional cores to boost that performance – these new versions are looking like they’ll be available a little later in New Zealand.
Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER (TBC)
